Actor John Schneider, famous for his role in “Smallville,” has announced the passing of his wife Alicia Allain. This was very saddening news for many people for a variety of reasons.
In a heartfelt Facebook post shared late Wednesday, Schneider revealed that his beloved partner, whom he affectionately called “My Smile,” is now pain-free and residing in the presence of Jesus in her new body.
“Please respect our privacy during this time of grief. Please do not ask any questions,” his message continued. “If you have any pictures of us and our obvious love and adoration for each other, please post them below. Lastly… hug those you love tight and let them know how you feel. We always did.”
Just a few days before the announcement of his wife’s passing, John Schneider had shared a photo of Alicia on his Twitter account, calling her his “center,” his “everything,” and of course, his “Smile.” While the exact cause of her death has not been disclosed, it’s been reported that Alicia was diagnosed with cancer back in 2019.
Her obituary says: “Alicia passed away at her home surrounded by her family as she took her last breath on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, at the age of 53.”
“Alicia was a proud mom and smile to her husband. Filmmaker and music producer since the 90’s. Alicia is survived by her husband, John R. Schneider, who he called ‘My Smile’; her daughter, Jessica Ann Dollard (Daniel Turner) who she was very proud of; parents, Michael and Linda Marino Allain; brother, Brandy Michael Allain; grandmother, Doris Cruti Marino Alvarado; step-daughter, Karis Schneider (Justin); granddaughter, Sierra Schneider. Alicia was preceded in death by her grandparents, Ferd Sr. and Ruby Allain, Joe Marino.”
Alicia Allain and John Schneider were married in 2019, before her diagnosis of cancer. Schneider is best known for portraying Bo Duke on the hit TV series “Dukes of Hazzard” for seven seasons, from 1979 to 1985. He also portrayed Jonathan Kent in ‘Smallville.’ In addition to his acting career, Schneider has also pursued a successful music career since 1981.
